The Eagles of Southern California won their second title at the US Youth Soccer National Championships in three years when they beat the powerhouse Dallas Texans Red, 3-2, in the U-17 girls final on Sunday at at the Pizza Hut Park complex in Frisco, Texas.

Emily Cressy scored two goals in the first half, and Nicole Sweetman collected the rebound and scored in the 57th for the Eagles. Melissa Henderson scored both Texans goals to finish with six goals.

The McLean Freedom knocked off the other Dallas Texans Red finalist, winning the U-16 girls final, 3-2, in overtime. Caroline Miller was the difference with two goals in the final.

Both finalists from Slammers FC of Southern California also lost. Bloomfield Force beat the Slammers on penalty kicks in the U-18 girls final after the game ended in a 1-1 tie. The U-14 Slammers also went to overtime, where they fell to local club Sting Royal, 2-1, on Brittney Nash's goal.

The Carmel United Soccer Club Cyclones won the U-19 girls title with a 2-0 win over the PWSI Cardinals a day after their 3-3 tie in a match replayed from the 42nd minute after PWSI was incorrectly awarded an indirect free kick after a Cyclones' penalty kick was nullified because a Cyclones player entered the 18-yard box too early. PWSI had won Friday's game, 5-4. That result would have eliminated Carmel and sent CASL Spartans Elite.
